Indians Defeat Lions 1-0 in Overtime

18_WSOC_HandAmberANS
MARS HILL, N.C. - Amber Hand's goal in overtime secured Catawba's 1-0 victory against Mars Hill Wednesday at Meares Stadium.

The Kernersville native netted the second goal of her rookie campaign with 50 seconds remaining in the first 10-minute extra period. Hand found the back of the Lions (2-9-0, 1-5 SAC) net unassisted, from just inside the box on the far post.

With the victory, the Indians improved to 9-2-0 overall and 4-2-0 in league play, matching their win total from last season's South Atlantic Conference action, with four conference matches remaining. They vaulted up the league table into fourth place, three points behind Carson-Newman, Anderson and Lenoir-Rhyne, which are tied at the top with 15 points each.

Catawba entered the contest ranked eighth in this week's United Soccer Coaches NCAA DII Women's Southeast Region Poll. The Indians were unable to capitalize on playing with a player advantage from the 38th minute of regulation, until Hand struck at 99:10.

The Indians' defense kept Mars Hill's offense in check, allowing just two of the Lions' 11 shots to make it on net, where keeper Shelby Thompson saved both.

Inside the numbers:
- Catawba outshot Mars Hill 18-11.
- The nine wins is the most by the Indians since 2014, when they won 11 games.
- Catawba is four points away from clinching a spot in the SAC tournament and can clinch a spot with a win Saturday and a loss or draw by Newberry.
- Thompson registered her fourth clean sheet of the season, allowing 10 goals in 11 matches.

Next Up:
Catawba hosts Coker at Frock Field Saturday at 7:30 p.m.
